Fees paid upon submission of your application are composed of:
- Visa fees set by the French administration for the processing of your application. The fees are indicated in euros. Fees collected are retained by the administration, likewise in the case of visa refusal;
- Service fees set by VFS when you submit your application at the external service provider. Service fees are based on local currency equivalent to 32 euros per application submitted and are non-refundable, except if the applicant decides to withdraw his/her application before the acquisition of biometrics.
Optional service fees are also offered to visa applicants. Service fees must be paid in cash at the visa application center upon submission of application. You must ensure that you possess the necessary amount before arriving at the Center.
